OBERLIN – Magnficat’s Sara Fessler was a one-woman road show as the Blue Streaks (2-3) knocked off Oberlin (0-3), 2-1, on Wednesday. Her 15 strikeouts on the mound handcuffed the Phoenix offense, while she also had the game-winning RBI.

It’s was Magnificat’s second 2-1 win in as many days (also defeating Bay on Tuesday).

Fessler drove in Ali Winchester for the game-winning RBI in the 5th inning.

Oberlin senior pitcher Bryanna Rivas had a solid day with 12 strikeouts and only allowed four hits herself.

Another senior for the Phoenix, Khalilah Wimbley, doubled and scored her team’s only run in the second inning.

Oberlin will host Trinity at 5 p.m. on Thursday.
